Estia Taverna - New Jersey
Excellent food, excellent drinks. It was a little loud inside, but the food and cocktails greatly outweighed that minor detail
Really great seafood!
We were sitting very close to a party of 6 and could hear almost every word of their conversation. Should tables be further apart?
Amazing as always. Estia is a must go for Greek Cuisine. The Moussaka was fantastic. We will be back again soon.
Food was really good(not amazing). But the pricing was ridiculous. For what I got, and what I paid, it wasn't worth it. I'm not a cheap guy, and prefer upper class restaurants but I wont be back
Excellent for fresh selection of fish. Service is always i best interest of the customer.
Wonderful service and food. We felt like home during our visit. Service impeccable
Very good, solid dining experience. Staff was very efficient and friendly. Octopus was excellent!
We went for Mothers Day with our toddler and the staff was very accommodating. We loved the hummus served at the table and the calamari was very very fresh. We ordered the mixed seafood over orzo and the halibut. Inside is beautiful. We will definitely be back!
Fantastic Greek food. Great atmosphere! Service was very good.
My Grilled Octopus Appetizer came and was delicious! My husband’s Shrimp Cocktail did not arrive by the time I was finished so my husband told our server Justin to please cancel it. His response was that he thought that we were going to share which was clearly not the case. Nonetheless, we ordered entrees which were good. Unfortunately, my husband knocked his glass of red wine which miraculously he caught mid-air. He was covered from his forehead to the large red spots on his light blue sweater yet our server did not even offer to bring club soda to help dissolve the stains let alone another glass of wine! We like the food but will not be returning to the dining room anytime soon.
Excellent food presentation, service. Food was pleasing to the palet and cooked to perfection. Can't say enough good things about this Greek restaurant. It's like finding a gem in the sand - Tony C
Octopus appetizer was excellent as were the the lamb chops. Wine list was a little pricey.
Food was amazing as always. Waitstaff was clueless and in slow motion!
Birthday Celebration with gluten free guest - excellent offerings!
Great food. Happy ambiance. Fabulous service.
First time for lunch. Very nice light menu for lunch and fish of the day was perfect portion and value.
I ordered the Lobster pasta, I received a plate of pasta submerged in a kind of tomatoes sauce that was contained a cheesy taste (never knew Greeks used cheese with fish!) With regards to the presence of Lobster it was hardy tasted or visible, two one inch sized lobster meats were present!
I hardy can believe it was worth $40.- for my dish!
If they were out of the lobster that day why not tell? Also their decorative plate containing half a lobster shell was so re-used that it made me think on how they run their hygiene procedures in the kitchen!
Will have to think twice before eating there again.
Hi Patrizio - Wanted to clarify and answer your concerns. For your particular order there was 1 pound of lobster served. Sometimes we take a 2 pound lobster and sell it for 2 orders, in this particular case that is what happened. Everything is cooked to order and shells are NOT reused. The lobster linguine dish is very popular and ordered very often and would've gladly refunded if returned during your experience. Kind Regards Gus Pashalis
Prices for whole fish are high and best shared to avoid “check shock “!
Food is aways good I order the same meal everytime aways fresh and good.
Love this restaurant. Both the food and service are excellent. Have never been disappointed whether it’s been lunch, Happy Hour, or dinner. I hosted my daughter’s bridal shower at Estia, and that too, was a pleasure thanks to the knowledgeable and professional staff. Always recommend this place and have made a reservation for this Sunday for Greek Easter - had such a nice Easter dinner last Sunday, thought we’d head back for an authentic Greek menu offering.
I generally enjoy my experiences at Estia Taverna, however on this occasion the food and the service were less than I've come to expect from Estia. My party went to an early seating at 4:00pm.One guest requested sesame tuna, from the menu, and we were told it was not available. My wife and I ordered the salt crusted black sea bass. The portions we received are not what we've come to expect. I would recommend that the plating and deboning of the fish take place table side. Overall, the service was slow and less than attentive.
The Grilled Octopus is one of the best dishes you will ever get
Food was amazing! Great atmosphere! Friendly staff! Would definitely go again!
The food was terrific. We ordered the whole sea bass which was perfectly cooked. It was very flavorful and void of any unnecessary sauces. It was truly a very healthy meal. We also ordered the lamb chops. They were perfectly cooked and a very tasty quality meat. Our server was spot on perfect. She was knowledgeable and very comfortable in her job. She was personable, friendly and funny but all within the parameters of professionalism. We will return again in the near future.
Excellent food as usual
Our anniversary dinner was better than we had imagined. From the waiter to the food this place surely made our night a wonderful one filled with good memories. Food was delicious and creatively decorated and the environment was what we were hoping for; calm and warm. We will surely return to Estia for our dinner dates.
Love the food!!!
Treated out of state friends. They were very impressed
Food is always excellent here. Seafood is always fresh and cooked to perfection.
Freshest Oysters, Tuna Tartar is Best we've had. Great grilled halibut.
Amazing. Great Greek wine selection
As always, we have never had anything but an excellent meal and great service. Food is always fresh and prepared and presented perfectly.
Great food but a lot of entrees overpriced as well as wine and drinks.
The server was very helpful. We came for the oyster special which lived up to expectations. Initially the server said they were out of oysters, the reason we came. And after we made perfectly clear that we were going to leave, somehow they managed to find enough oysters to satisfy us. The appetizers were just fine and the drinks were generous, if fully priced.
Always wanted to try this place. It didn’t disappoint. The food was fabulous. The lamb meatballs app was great and get the baklava
My daughter was home for the weekend, couldn’t pass up a dinner out with her mom. She wanted to try a Greek resteraunt near home. I’ve driven by many times & this was a perfect opportunity. The service from beginning to end was fantastic. Our first time eating Greek food & we wanted to try new dishes. So upon asking our server for suggestions he was very familiar & gave us fantastic choices to choose from. I was surprised by how tasty & well prepared our meal was. Truly felt the love in the food. The next time she flies home we will definitely be back again.
Small portions get smaller every time I go back and more expensive. Always raising their prices
Everything was absolutely delicious!!! Wonderful dinner.
Yes - i would suggest during restaurant weekl to have one more bartender while waiting for seats—
